Not normal: You should not have any breakthrough bleeding if it is the right one for your body.You need to go back to doctor for adjustment of your pills.Depends on what part of the cycleof your breakthrough bleeding , your doctor can change to the correct one for you.

Depends: A little breakthrough bleeding is common on the pill and only a problem if it's enough to bother you. Can occur anytime.
